So, I know the 1 to 2 people who read this will be totally floored that not only am I posting for third time in a year, but I'm posting less than a month then the September post.

Since I'm using this more as a ranting spot/story time, first up we will get a rant.

Facebook is getting borderline annoying with people being so so stupid when it comes to the Presidential race. Ok, if you're voting for Romney, that's fine and it's your decision, but don't take it out on people who support President Obama. Honestly if I could/wanted to, I'd stop visiting the site, but barring seeing people in real life, that's how I stay connected with people. Both sides just seed to simmer down and stop being so annoying and frustrating.

Story time..This is how I dislocated my shoulder which began 3 months of frustration/pain/anger/depression.

In June I was working overnights like I usually do, but the power went out. Now the generator is supposed to turn on within 3 or 4 seconds, but unlike what it was supposed to do, it didn't. We were in the middle of a commercial break so it wasn't too alarming, but then when the generator still didn't turn on after 10 seconds, I decided to get up and get a portable light kit and get things fixed that way. I turned around from my seat and saw it was pitch black, so I got my phone and went to unlock it and get the flashlight app ready, but started walking. I tripped over a new phone bank set they'd just moved over to next to my seat and with all of my weight landed on my right elbow which pushed my shoulder out of its socket. So I'm now face down on the phone bank platform screaming (still in commercial break) and not even 5 seconds later the generator kicks on..explaining that makes it seem like the generator was off for a while, but in reality, the power was only off for 15 seconds max. I try to right myself, but I couldn't put any sort of weight on my whole right side of my body. I got some help from the Traffic anchor and some of my other coworkers and I was driven to the ER. I was then knocked out to put my shoulder back in it's place which was a fun experience to tell to people. Basically the doctor just pulled and put it back in place and then put my arm back on my chest and woke me up.

So from that week until July 5th, I had an immobilization sling on..that was seriously unpleasant and I still don't like talking about it, so starting on July 5th I got a regular sling and was able to stop wearing the sling altogether on July 27th. The next week I started Physical Therapy and did that up until the 20th of September. So since this happened at work, it was all workers compensation so I didn't have to pay for anything which is nice. I've been getting the "receipts" of the work that was done from the ER visit to the doctor appointments and the physical therapy and it's easily gone over $5,000.

But all of that is now done with and I have to say I have had no pain or any limited range of motion so that's extremely pleasing to know.

Anyway, for the people who had no idea that happened to me, there you go..hopefully you enjoy reading it or seeing that it's a long post and completely skipping it.

That's all for now. Maybe I'll make it an even 4 posts this year, who knows.

So I realize not too many people actually are reading this, however, after speaking to a few people about my previous post, they told me that I was being too hard on myself. While I do agree to a point, what still stands is the fact that I was rather obnoxious on here and in real life for an extended period of time. Obviously, I can't go and change that, but at the same time I suppose my "frustration/anger" is justified. Looking at the past 10 years of my life, at least on here, I have seen how I acted and to a point and I'm sure that was also translated into my "real" life, in addition to my "digital" life. It's also frustrating to me that I did act like that and obviously if I could go back and alter my life, I would.."but Chris" you ask, "wouldn't that change who you are now?" Yes it would change who I am now and for at least a few parts, I'm actually content/happy with and wouldn't want to change those parts. I also kinda wish that I had posted this crap years ago when more people actually read LJ so I could (inflict isn't the best word, but I'm tired so that's what I'm going to go with) inflict my thoughts on them and possibly (although I doubt it) alter some impressions of myself. It's actually kinda funny, ever since the group for the Class of 2003 reunion group was created on Facebook, I've become very introspective. It's almost to the point of sheer anger that I acted the way I did..yes I realize that it seems silly and it was just a bunch of high school douchebaggery that was occuring, but clearly if I'm still talking about it now, there was some sort of impression left on my psyche (probably negative). Either way, hopefully in the next few months, things will start changing for the positive and I can do some sort of happier post, like I'm getting married or I'm having a baby or something since that's the thing to do for folks my age.

On a separate topic, I signed up for Google Play and successfully transferred all of my music to "the cloud" and I'm able to listen to all of my music on my phone or any computer after I sign in. That's pretty awesome..I signed up for it last year, but then never did anything with it until I realized I still had it, but it's pretty neat. I was concerned about me not being able to import any of the songs I purchased on iTunes, but it put them in too.

I know I've surprised the all of 1 or 2 people that still regularly check here that I've posted more than once in a year, but who knows, maybe I'll do another one in a few months to see if I have become more "chipper".

26 April 2012 @ 09:27 am
Look it's LJ..So besides the extreme low number of people who actually go through this site and the random spammers that will try and post viruses on my comments, I'm pretty sure no one will be reading this. I told myself after about 2008 or 2009 that I was going to post about my 2002-2003 postings and how they were and all of that but things got in the way (and I also forgot that I had posted them), so I guess the way to celebrate my 10th year of having this thing, I'll look back and post about my thoughts and feelings on what I wrote and how I feel about them now.

So, I've been looking back at my older posts and holy crap that was a pain to read through. Not only was I annoying, but I didn't seem to notice people were making fun of me for it. So two things came across my mind when I see those posts, first I get crazy angry at how everyone was treating me and how everyone talked about me to the point of me writing another post instead of this one and flipping out on everyone and then secondly, I realize I brought it upon myself. I'll be posting about both. I mean for Gods sake the post that garnered 1000+ comments saying how annoying I was, was quite frankly one of the most screwed up things I've ever have been a part of and I was like an absent minded fool for half of it (and yes I know it was really only about 200 comments that were truly just about me, but the fact still stands). Believe me when I say that not only was that a terrible thing I was a part of, it was a horrible reminder of how I used to be.

While I can't say this with 100% accuracy, I do know that I would have posted less if I ever realized how much of a dumbass I was being. Stupid posts of "I'm at 100 posts now, more later" and "I'm just trying to beat Janel now, so I'm going to go to 110 posts"..seriously? Jesus that was dumb.

Unfortunately, there are still some of those aspects of my life that I do that still are annoying people..I've learned that at work now when I try to talk and people just shut me off or just flat out make fun of me (that really pisses me off too). Using the saying "I'm working on it" phrase I know I probably said over the years, it's something that I need to work on. For the most part the people I know these days smile and nod and I get the picture, but back then I didn't and no one seemed to do anything other than poke fun at me for it. Looking back, does that piss me off? Yes it does.

Now to the other part..Seeing now the "Shut Up Chris" posts and comments and that 1000+ comment post about how sorry Justin was that he gave me a LJ code (even though it was probably close to about 200ish comments that were just dealing with me) really just pisses me off. For one reason or another, I didn't take the damn hint and I realize that now, but I mean the constant barrage of things you guys said to me during the whole thing was totally nasty. I'm sure everyone was getting a real kick out of saying those things to me and me respond with some line breaks and exclamation points. I'm also positive that when if I even tried to stand up for myself, that wouldn't have happened or if it did, it would have been quickly put out. I don't know, besides the obvious "it was easy" comment, why instead of telling me straight up, I was told passive-aggressively. I would have been hurt, but I would have gotten over it. Now to the people who are reading this now and thinking, "why didn't he say these things back then instead of saying them now?"..and didn't read the top of my post..Well it's simple, for a few years, I completely forgot that I had posted borderline insane things and those comments were said about me.

In the end, I guess the only reason why I'm even posting this and putting this on here is to just have it out for the world to see. I may have not been the most "compelling" person to talk to, I know I bored some people straight out of their minds, but I know at the end of it all, some of you guys at least still bothered to talk to me. If this pisses someone off, so be it, if not, that's fine too. I just felt I needed to get this off my chest.

So I guess that's all I have to say. Not sure when I'll post again, but knowing me, it'll be sometime next year, so I hope everyone enjoys 2012.

Wow LJ it's been a while, I don't think I did a 2010 post but oh well. What's been up with me? Nothin much, but 2010 was interesting, I got a slight promotion at FCN. I'm now in charge of the production side of Good Morning Jacksonville so that's fun. I got a cat, his name is Cosmo. So that's fun! I turned 25 and that was fun as usual haha I turn 26 this year. It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about stupid high school stuff or that college is bein frustrating. But besides all of that, I'm happy so that's what really matters. Anywho, that's all for now. No guarantees that I'll post again soon so yeah that's all for now.

Wow I can't believe it's been over a year since I posted in here. I remember a time I would go straight here to write about my day, which usually was some boring thing that no one truly cared about :p

Besides all of that though, 2009 was a crazy year for me. I had a lot of firsts in 09, some awesome some not so awesome, but all in all I've learned a lot and hopefully 2010 will be even better. Something else that kinda shocks me is that I've had this thing for almost 8 years.

For those who care, I've not been up to much, I moved into a new place which is nicer than the small space I had before, I'm learning how to work the cameras at FCN and have done a pretty good job with it all.

My parents got a new dog named Lady Junebug, or Juney for short.

I've learned what it means to work overnights, and it's something I totally and completely can't stand and I've spent time with my friends.

So with 2009 quickly coming to a close, I say goodbye and welcome 2010, may you be wayyy better than 09 has been.

Lots to talk about kinda I guess.

July I started Freelance Editing at First Coast News, also in July something else happened that I already posted, but I won't go into that on here.

Early August I started working overnights at FCN doing Good Morning Jacksonville Saturday and Sunday..that was a drag cause I got almost no sleep and my schedule was always out of whack. The last few days of September I was told I was being moved to night side on the weekend so that got my sleep schedule back to what it needed to be.

September went along as usual, nothing too crazy happened other than Fay which was an incredibly dumb Tropical Storm.

October was routine as was November although working Thanksgiving was a very strange experience because I had never worked on a major holiday before.

Right around that time I found out about the position that I had originally applied for back in November of last year, Associate Producer. So I took the writing test and trained a few days for a lesser position. This past Friday (the 12th..a year pretty much after I graduated), I found out that I had gotten the job and would start during Christmas week. In all actuality I start tomorrow full time and all that good stuff, working on the 5 and 5:30 p.m. shows.

I realized that the end of the year is freakishly close so I decided to write this.

Besides working wayyyy too much at WJCT, FCN and Publix I actually did have some fun in there. I hung out with friends and all that good stuff, it was a nice respite from going to work every day almost and it was always a lot of fun, too.

Although I'm workin New Years Eve and Day, which absolutely blows, I'm hoping that 2009 will be a better year than 2008, where I can finally quit Publix and end my 6 and a half year time there, and actually get days off without working somewhere else which is what I do now.

So in a nutshell that was the second half of 2008, here's to 2009!

I should post considering I haven't in an inordinate amount of time..what's been up with me? Same ol same ol. I'm really enjoying WJCT although I'm not getting as many hours as I would like, it's still way way better than Publix. They've been training me in an engineering position which deals with how the cameras look on TV and stuff like that which has been fun to do. I'm still contemplating getting a job at First Coast News because at Publix one of my coworkers' dad's works there as part of the people that hire employees, so I'm hoping I either hear a yes or a no on that.

Uhh, my birthday is in about 15 days which is surprising when I say it like that. This year has really flown by way way too fast.

Final note really..Since I didn't do this in November and any of the other times I've posted since then, I wanted to put the whole Publix Man Trilogy together, so here are all the movies, in order...

Publix Man: The Beginning

Publix Man: The Revenge of Publix Man

Publix Man: The Final Chapter

So there you have it, all three of the movies and all that good stuff.

Because I know I won't post again before the 15th, Happy Birthday Isabelle!

That's about it for now, don't know when I'll post again.

31 January 2008 @ 10:06 pm
So what's been up in my life? A whole lotta nuttin. I'm in the "real world" now which is fun because I don't have to worry about papers or tests. I started officially at WJCT on the 10th of this month and I really enjoy it, but I plan on applying at other places too and I've done that, I've applied at First Coast News and I will be applying at Channel 4 and CBS 47/FOX 30, and some radio stuff.

Overall though, it's been really fun and I am looking forward to this year.

31 December 2007 @ 02:08 am
I need to post about what's been up with me.

Uhh lets see, November saw a lot of my school stuff finalize, I finished Publix Man 2 and 3, and they are on YouTube now, so just search for "Publix Man" and the other two should pop up, "The Revenge of Publix Man" and "The Final Chapter", so that's that.

I also finished up my internship on the 30th and applied for a job there as part of the crew.

Now onto December..I finished everything grades related on the 7th when I turned in my Portfolio for my Internship class, so I was happy about that, because I only had to survive one more week up at UNF as a student there.

The last week of school saw me mainly just finishing up stuff at Osprey TV. I threw an Osprey TV Staff party that week, which was a lot of fun, and was able to catch up on a ton of sleep that I had lost over the past four months.

On the 14th, I got a call from WJCT officially offering me the job as part of the crew and for me to come up to the station to fill out paper work. I also graduated on the 14th, and it was prolly one of the coolest things because I walked across that stage and realized that I wouldn't have to go to school anymore. It's not gonna fully hit me though until everyone else goes back because everyone is on Christmas Break.

I also applied at First Coast News as an Assistant Producer, so I'm hoping to find out about that sometime after the new year starts.

Christmas was nice, I got a new monitor because the one I had broke, I got some DVDs, and as mainly a joke, I got a "coupon" for "one car shopping adventure, to take place this weekend at Lucas Honda. Love Mom and Dad." That basically means that they took me car shopping for a new Civic. I got the car loan myself, and my parents present to me is some money to put towards it for the monthly payment. I got a 2008 Civic LX Royal Blue which looks more Navy than anything, so Isabelle if you read this, that's the kind of car you need to get haha

Overall, I think 2007 was a very interesting year for me, I worked at three jobs for a few months, learned how an honest to God TV station ran itself, started working at UNF's TV station, and realized how annoying Publix was.

Here's to 2008. May it be even more exciting than 2007.

31 October 2007 @ 08:32 pm
Firstly Happy Halloween everyone!

Secondly, I have been offered a job at WJCT as part of the Production Crew. That means that I'll set up sets and designs, do lighting, work on the cameras, and do a little bit of everything, which is awesome. I'll start sometime after I finish my internship in December, so right out of College I get the job I know I will enjoy.

For all of you who wondered, yes I will still work at Publix, but on a limited basis, so if they need me at WJCT a lot, I won't work at Publix. The Crew job is part time, but I am gonna look around at WJCT to see if there might be something on the radio I could do, so it's up in the air on that part, but overall it's gonna be amazing.

Other than that, school is annoying, I can't wait until I finish it all up. Right about 44 days as of today until I graduate. It can't come fast enough :-p

I started filming Publix Man: The Revenge of Publix Man and Publix Man: The Final Chapter yesterday, and it's due on the 15th, so I will have them up and ready to go on YouTube sometime after that.

That's all for now!

30 September 2007 @ 11:49 pm
Just a few little updates about the goings on in Chris' life:

-My internship is amazing at WJCT. Although, on the 11th, a transformer exploded and they were knocked off the air. The 10th, Monday, was my first day there, so that was an interesting time :-p
-Classes are all right, I'm going to enjoy not taking my Media Literacy class, the professor is insane.
-Working three jobs is also taking up some of my time. One of which is WJCT which is something I don't get paid for :-p
-Publix is Publix as usual
-Osprey TV is doin good..I will prolly miss that the most out of the past two years in college.
-The rain we had here from the 17th until the 19th was absolutely soaking. If I had done a post on the 17th it would have said the following:

"Happy 23rd Birthday Carl!

Today's word of the day is: Rain!"

It rained the entire day nonstop, and then continued to Tuesday and finally stopped Wednesday afternoon.

Expect another post sometime before the end of October.

The weather is finally changing, so now I have that to look forward to. Although as I'm writing this, the song fits what it was doing today.

Just a quick update for August.

School is back in session and so far my classes are good. I start my internship September 5th so I'm really looking forward to that, but other than that, nothin much else is up. I'm still at Publix and Osprey TV. I have class Monday thru Thursday starting at 3 or 3:05 depending on the time, so that's always a good thing.

I'll post more once I find out how my internship at WJCT is going.

31 July 2007 @ 11:22 pm
So July's come and gone and what's been up with Chris? Work and School, no change there, but it's constant.

Although I doubt people will read this, I wanna say Happy Birthday to Meghan today and then tomorrow Happy Birthday Janel!

27 Days until I start my Internship at WJCT, and I'm looking forward to it. It should be really awesome doing that, so I hope it is.

I'll update again prolly in a week or so, maybe.

30 June 2007 @ 12:04 pm
What have I been up to? School, Publix Work, and Osprey TV work and that's pretty much been it. I finished up my last 9 a.m. class ever back on the 25th and I have to say it's wonderful waking up at 10 now instead of 7.

Last week was my 5 years at Publix. Yeah, that's all I have to say about that.

I would post more, but I don't have the time. Since I won't be posting again until later, I hope everyone has a great 4th of July!

31 May 2007 @ 01:40 am
Firstly, it's going to be short cause I'm tired.

So I've lived in my Apartment for a year now. I'm pleased with it, so soon I'm going to have some pictures up with how it looks now.

I turned 22 a few weeks ago, so that was nice. I had some friends over and it was cool.

This past weekend I got a new bed, it replaced one that was 19 years old, and it's really nice too, soft and bigger.

I'm taking one class right now and in 4 weeks I'm gonna take another one, so this summer will be a little less stressful than the last.

I got my Internship at WJCT, and I start in August, so I'm looking forward to that starting soon.

In a few weeks I will have worked at Publix for 5 years. Today, I got my name tag that has a star that shows I've worked there for 5 years.

Just in case someone hasn't seen it, here's my Publix Man movie. Enjoy:

Oops..There were only a few interesting things that happened in March.

Spring Break..I had a nice little party at my apartment which involved lots of Green, so that was fun. I was able to finally go to the beach, but ended up with a crazy sun burn on my back.

Last week of March I "got the ball rolling" for my internship, and I have an interview for the internship at WJCT (the PBS station) dealing with Production. I have the interview on April 30th for that, so I'm looking forward to that.

On to April News..I launched the Osprey TV web site and it's at http://www.ospreytv.com

I registered for classes today for the last time. I'm taking two summer and 4 fall classes:

Summer A Term: May 14th to June 25th, 2007
Monday and Wednesday
9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. <--- ADV 3000 Principles of Advertising

Summer B Term: June 27th, to August 6th, 2007
Monday and Wednesday
12:40 p.m. - 4:10 p.m. <--- RTV 3101 Advanced Broadcast Writing

Fall 2007 Term: August 28th to December 14th, 2007
Monday and Wednesday
3:00 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. <--- MMC 1004 Media Literacy

Tuesday Only
6:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. <--- CCJ 2002 Crime in America
Whenever they want me to intern <--- MMC 4975 Senior Project

So that's what the rest of my college life looks like today and I'm looking forward to it because I'll be able to finally get stuff done and graduate from UNF.

I'm rapidly approaching living in my apartment now for a year and I still haven't posted any pictures of what it looks like, cause for the most part it's decorated..I'll get around to it sometime maybe.

I'll prolly post my grades and do another update soon perhaps.

Less than a month until Isabelle and myself turn 22!

14 February 2007 @ 12:04 am
I have kinda launched the Osprey TV web site. All that's left is for me to get the "pretty little font" as one of the producers put it, and actually put it on the UNF server..but for now..


I will let whoever wants to know when that address changes, but for now it's good to go..one thing I need help on though is this..The video on the left side of the page, does it appear right next to the text or either above or below it? If no one answers it doesn't really bother me too much, but I would like to know how everyone likes it anyway.

I'll be posting before February ends, I promise.

30 January 2007 @ 11:41 pm
So yeah, yay for January. This year so far has been interesting.

Some highlights:
- I got asked to be the News Anchor for yoUr News Flash and help out with more stuff.
- I have 30 more credits left before I finish school.
- I hung up stuff on my walls and my apartment is looking more and more lived in.
- I got a new watch.
- I will hopefully be doing my internship Summer A.

Some other "-lights"
- A class I need to graduate wasn't offered until last minute and I was placed on the wait list. I was #2..by the end of the first day I had become #1. I still didn't get into the class. After e-mailing the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences I found out it was a fire hazard so they couldn't add another student. I also found out that they're offerin the class during the Summer so I'm taking it then.
- This year, specifically in June, marks the 5th year I have worked at Publix.
- I've had this journal since Jan 28, 2002 which is also 5 years.

A special side note: Troy I will miss you sir, and you must come back as soon as you can so we can visit. Have fun in the Virginia sir.

Ok, that's all for now.

Another volunteer and I are starting work on the Osprey TV web site, so if I get that up and running I will post a link. That's all for now, I'll post again in February.

So hopefully, if everything goes as it should, I'll be graduating Fall 2007.

For now though, have a Merry Christmas and Merry every other holiday out there that happens this time of the year.

I'll post again sometime after Christmas so yep, expect a post then.

I really should be working on my various papers that are due this and next weeks, but I figured that I would give everyone out there a small update on what's been going on with me.

I had to talk to Osprey TV and tell them that I needed the remainder of the semester to myself..I had too much stuff piling up on me and I couldn't take that plus work. I will be, hopefully, starting back up with them again come January.

Today I registered for Spring 2007, and I'm happy to say I actually got the class I've been after now since Fall 2005..here's my tentative schedule..

Tuesday and Thursday
9:25 a.m. - 12:05 p.m. <-- RTV 3220C Television Production/Visual Arts TV
12:15 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. <-- AMH 3220 Making of Modern America 1877 - 1920
1:40 p.m. - 2:55 p.m. <-- AMH 3111 Early America

Tuesday Only
3:05 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. <-- RTV 3101 Advanced Broadcast Writing (I'm waitlisted on this class)
6:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. <-- CPO 3123 Politics and Society in Britain and Ireland

Either one of these two history classes will fulfill my History Minor, so I will be completely done with history after May 4, 2007!

So yeah, once I find out about Advanced Broadcast Writing, I will have 4 classes, with a majority of them being only on Tuesday, which is helpful for me..If worst comes to worst, I will probably drop the Politics in Ireland and Britain class, but time will tell.

I have an amazing amount of papers to write, so I am going to go and do that. December 14th can't come any sooner..for now that's all. Expect a post shortly after Fall 2006 Term ends.

Let's see, for all of you guys that don't know, I recently became the Sports Anchor for Osprey TV's Ur News Flash. I did a 3 and a half minute segment that has aired now quite frequently on Osprey TV at UNF. Yesterday was the first day I saw it completely put together, and I can't believe that it was me on there :-p

Here's the link to their MySpace..once they launch the Osprey TV web site they will put them there, but since it's not up yet, they decided to put it on the MySpace..


So I taped that last Thursday and did the voice overs on Friday. It was crazy learning how to do all of that stuff. I hope you guys like it. My segment, Ur Sports Flash, is at the end.

Today, I went up to UNF to talk to advising about when I could graduate and do my internship and all that good stuff. Turns out that I'm closer than what I actually thought. If all things go according to plan, I will graduate Fall of 2007. Here's the crazy fact..I will complete my major, if all things go according to plan, Spring 2007. After that, I have to take 3 free elective classes and then I can do my internship Summer 2007. For the Fall of 07, I would do the 3 free electives. All of my uncertainty in the beginning of my college career has helped me without me even knowing it. I have almost everything done and the only reason why was because, I changed my major from some random computer major and even as an undecided major. I took classes I thought I would like.

I'll keep you guys up-to-date about all of that good stuff..for now, I'm going to watch some tv and relax.

Let's see, what have I been doin in September? Not a whole lot really, school is crazy and work is strange lately. I started out the month with about 30 hours a week and went down rather quickly to as low as 18 hrs a week, now I can't live off of that, so I talked to my manager who gave me a set schedule of 32 hours a week, so that helps out a lot.

Nothin too big is happening at school, I talked to career services about interning at Clear Channel, and the lady said that it was a good plan and that I should talk to advising to see when a good time for me to take it is.

I am lending my voice to a project for a class that I'm not enrolled in, so that's going to be interesting.

That's pretty much it, I would have more to say if I led more of an exciting life, but what can ya do I suppose. That's all for now, I will hopefully post before the very last day of October, but it might not happen :-p

That's all for now, have a fun rest of your day!

I finished summer classes August 2nd and I have to say that I was very pleased with the results of what I got. I received two B's in each of the classes I took. I was very relieved to get those scores because I was a little nervous about how I would do.

So that was that. I haven't been doin too much lately, but I did move my bookshelf over to my apartment so when I get all of that figured out and everything where it should be, I will take some pictures and show them to everyone.

This week started school for me again. So far, I'm enjoying my classes. I have class until 6 so it's a long day :-p I saw a lot of Clay High people my first day and it was cool. Today I had a surprise, none other than Troy sat down next to me in one of my classes, so that was cool.

I haven't had my classes long enough to see whether or not I really will enjoy them, so for right now, that's all I can say about them.

I moved back up front at Publix, I'm a cashier again. While I'm happy I'm away from the Pharmacy, I kinda wish I was in the office again, because the people up there now are kinda ehh, and don't treat me with respect which bothers me to a point. I won't be there for much longer anyway because I hope to start my "dream job" as it were soon.

So yeah, that's all from the peanut gallery, I will prolly post before I go down to see Carl for his birthday with pictures of my nearly completed apartment.

So yeah, I realize it's almost August which brings me to my July post of what I've been doing.

Firstly, I thought I'd share something that many gas stations actually do, but what makes this one funny is that it's right in front of Pace Island. So it's actually local or whatever..

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Anywho, on to entry:
What's been going on in my life you say? Nothing grandly important. Monday (July 31st) starts my last week of school. So I'm really happy about that.

I was in the office until July 14th, 2006. Now I'm in the Pharmacy, but it's not something I'm happy with so I'm going back up front. I don't know what I'm going to be doing, although it will prolly just be cashiering. If you guys have my screen name and stuff I can tell you basically the story, because I don't want to broadcast it out over the internet. So yeah, I was in the pharmacy for about a month. My last day back there is August 10th so once that happens, I will be a little happier with my job.

What else is there to say? Oh yeah, my brother is now at UF, so if any of you UF people see him that's, uh, why heh

I also found out some information about my internship I have to do when I become a Senior. I'm going to focus on TV, and if I get my internship at Clear Channel, I will do news editing or some other form of editing, now that I try and write it down, I can't remember it. :-p

Things to look forward to in the next month:
August 10th..I'm out of the Pharmacy
August 29th..I start school with exciting classes
December 15th or so..I become a Senior at UNF

Well that's all for now. For now though I would like to send out some birthday wishes that happens today and tomorrow (Monday and Tuesday).
Happy 21st Birthday to Meghan
Happy 21st Birthday to Janel!

Janel you should give me a call if you go out on your birthday or not..I wish I could have gone down there to celebrate with you, but my confounded teachers wanted to end the semester on August 2 heh

See ya guys around or whatever, enjoy August because I'll prolly post sometime near the end of it :-p

Alrighty then, let's see what I've been doing for the month of June. The first week I almost got 40 hours at Publix mainly because I was doing insanely long shifts and also helping people out with training on the new registers. Other than that, I didn't really do anything outside of work that week.

The next week was more laid back which made me happier, I went out to dinner for my Mom's birthday. I also went to UNF and bought my books for the Summer B term. I had a party at my place for Josh for his 18th birthday, and things kinda got out of hand, but in the end everything got worked out. I can't have too many people at my apartment at once which is something I've learned now.

The next week, they scheduled me for even less hours (first week in June I ended up with 37, second 30, and the third week 22) so I was up there even less, so I had a little bit more of a life. On Wednesday I went to a club for the first time which was a nice experience. I went with Publix people and they bought me drinks. I had Tequila for the first time which was an interesting experience :-p All in all, I had a good day though.

This week started school for me, I'm taking Introduction to International Relations from 9-12:30 and Mass Communications Research from 12:40-4:10. It's a very full day just for two classes. On Wednesday of this week I was supposed to give a presentation (yes the second day of class) but we ran out of time..mainly because the teacher gave only about 45 minutes to 6 presenters. Other than that, I got even less hours at Publix..I need the money, and one of the things I ended up doing is agreed to work on Friday (today). It's something I don't want to do, but I'll end up with about 25 hours or so for this week..I'm not used to paying bills yet haha

So yeah, tomorrow starts July and also starts my second month living in my Apartment. I like it so far, it's really nice. I'm learning responsibilities and other things that I have to do, like for example, clean a bathroom..which is something I haven't done in a while.

Anyway, I'm going to end this post now, I will hopefully post sometime during the middle of July, but I'm not making any guarantees. That's all for now.

Yeah I kept putting this off, but I wanted to post now before June starts tomorrow..

All right so this month has been a crazy one. I'll give you the specifics..The first weekend of May I moved into my new apartment..The second weekend of May, I started preparing for my 21st birthday..The third weekend of May I had a graduation "party" at my apartment..and finally the fourth weekend of May, I had a friend from Alabama stay at my apartment.

So for those of you who don't know what my Apartment looks like, here are some pictures I took the first day I was here:

Pictures are excitingCollapse )

So that was that..since those pictures have been taken, I have put my posters from my room up, so it looks a little more lived in.

These next pictures are pictures you can look at if you want to, but it's not something you have to look at. It's just what my room looked like the day I moved out..

My room after I moved a majority of my stuff out..Collapse )

Anyway off of that now, I turned 21 back on the 15th, and I had a get-together here at my apartment..it was fun. The most important thing I remember is that I remembered it all, so I suppose that means I knew my limit and had a good time at the same time. I had a lot of fun that night. I don't have pictures of it, mainly because I didn't think about taking any, but there are some people who do have pictures of the night heh

Besides me moving out of my parents house and me turning 21, there isn't that much else to say in this post. This has been a very interesting month if I do say so myself. I look forward to many more exciting months to come. The next hurdle I have to cross is starting Summer B term at the end of June, but I promise I will post before then haha

26 April 2006 @ 08:35 pm
Fun times this month has been. A variety of things have happened which have left me annoyed at UNF once again. More on that later. I am not sure how I did it, but I managed to get through this semester with little or no sleep whatsoever. If I ever say "I'll take 8 a.m. classes again so I can get them over with" please shake me to my senses. That has been a nightmare, and to top it off, I didn't have any adequate sleep time, so that made me grumpy on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Today was the biggest insult to date. My Stats class is scheduled at 8, but the exam was for 7 a.m., now I don't have a problem with that, but when I factor in I have to get up at 5 just to leave at 6:15, it becomes annoying. So I leave at 6:30, cause I figure it won't be too bad, eh I was wrong :-p Got to school at 7:15, but oh well, I got to finish my exam with plenty of time left. So after a quick nap, I studied for my Medieval Europe exam. All in all the exams haven't been too terribly bad so that's a really good thing.

In other Publix related news, I am glad I have requested off Saturday to Monday..One, I need time away from there, and two, it's gotten on my nerves as of late. It's no use though to worry about it, it's prolly just stress.

Back to school related things, UNF really blows this semester with planning for scheduling. This is the first Fall I haven't been able to take everything I really wanted..although it's one class and it's technically for Summer B, it's still annoyin..so here we go:

Summer B Term: June 26th to August 2nd, 2006

Monday and Wednesday
- 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 a.m. <--- Introduction to International Relations
- 12:40 p.m. - 4:10 p.m. <--- Mass Communications Research

Fall 2006 Term: August 29th to December 12th, 2006

Tuesday and Thursday
- 10:50 a.m. - 12:05 p.m. <--- Spain in the New World
- 1:40 p.m. - 2:55 p.m. <--- Ethics and Law In Communications
- 3:05 p.m. - 4:20 p.m. <--- Broadcast Management
- 4:30 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. <--- Producing TV News

So that's what I'm doing starting in June..it's going to be an interesting summer. I'm moving into my own apartment May 1st, yes that's next week, and I don't know when I'm having some sort of party, but it will prolly be sometime after May is over and done with, because May is a very busy month for me. I'm turning 21 in two and a half weeks, my brother is Graduating from High School and I have various other things I have to handle dealing with family matters and stuff.

So anyway, that's what is goin on right now in my life. I wonder who is comin home this time for summer..I just know of two or three just coming back for a week or two before summer term starts. Anyway, I'll post again later.

Hello everyone, it's Chris and he's actually posting in his LiveJournal!

So what have I been doing for the past month and a half? Not too much, just a lot of school and work. Although, last week was Spring Break and I enjoyed mine a lot. I went to Panama City from Monday to Wednesday and had a good time just relaxing. The beach was warm, but there was a cool breeze so I couldn't enjoy it as much as I had wanted to.

I am very happy school is less than a month away from being completed for two reasons: One, they are closing the entrance to UNF from St. Johns Bluff Road for about three weeks starting on Logan's Birthday, the 29th, until whenever they finish it. I don't want to go Kernan to get to UNF, so I'm glad I don't have to go up there immediately after the Spring Semester is over with. The other reason is that I am really tired of these classes. Especially, I hate the traffic. Monday morning my dad calls me to tell me there's a car accident on the Buckman, so I have to leave early, and I get to school at 8:05. Wednesday comes along and my dad calls me again saying there's a gas spill on Blanding and everyone is taking 17 to get to 295. So I get to school at 8:15. Keep in mind my class starts at 8. So today comes around, my dad doesn't call, and I don't have too much trouble actually getting to school. I got there 10 minutes early. I sat in my car completely surprised. The last time I got to school before it turned 8 a.m. was on Presidents' Day back in February.

Other than that, not too much to report on. I am officially an office person now, I have the vest and the name tag.

45 days until Isabelle and myself turn 21! It should be interesting.

That's all for now, and I will try my best to post before April 30th :-p

I should post something, people are actually thinking I'm dead.

What have I been doing lately you ask? Well, I've been doing a lot of school and work. It sucks cause I liked the free time I had before, with the Friday's off and all that jazz. The 8 a.m. classes are just not cutting it for me any more, and the worst thing is that I have to go to my 8 a.m. class cause it's Stats, the last class I have to take before I get my AA. So that sucks. I would like to get more than 6 hours of sleep, but I can't do too much about that. ...End of rant...

In other news, I'm doing all right in my classes. I'm looking forward to increasing my GPA further towards a B at the end of the semester, so hopefully I'll be able to do that.

In LJ news, back on Jan 28th, my Journal crossed the threshold of 4 years of existence. I think back on the 28th, I was out or something, cause I don't remember why I couldn't post, but that's not important.

Publix is Publix. I'm starting to get the hang of the Office now, although they only give me a 5 hour shift up there on Thursdays. I do get to Coordinate on Tuesdays usually though, and I'm doing that this week.

Valentine's day is in a few days, one of those days where you just want to get through it cause you see too much red, or for other various reasons, depending on your mood.

In the time I have off from work and school, I've been hanging out with Megan and playing Nintendo and stuff. I've also been just kinda sittin around trying to get used to this early rising schedule.

I got a new phone on Friday and I switched plans. What does this mean to you guys? Nothing. I have the same number, so I don't feel a need to repost it here. It's a nice phone, never had a flip phone before so it's getting a little interesting to deal with. I'm now with Verizon, so whoever has that can now talk to me for free or something like that.

This weekend was fun. Nick came from Alabama and spent the weekend in my house. It was a fun time. I bought Mario Party 6 and had a good time battling people for the Mic. So that was this weekend, he'll be coming back for his 21st I believe.

I think that just about covers it. Hopefully I'll do another post that isn't about a month after this one, so everyone will know how I'm doing.

That's all for now.

Well, I know it's been a while, but I figured I would post something. Not too much is goin on, except for the fact that I got promoted at Publix. I am now a Customer Service Staff. I've been waiting for this for about a year, so I'm pleased now. As for school, I really don't like 8 a.m. classes at all, but since that gives me the entire time to do whatever later on in the day, I guess it's a good thing.

Last Friday, Megan and I started cleaning my room up. We made significant progress that day, but I had to work that night at 5 and she had things to do, so we decided to finish it up next Friday, which was today. So we started and got done, but the room became a horrible mess in between those times. Here's the finished product.Collapse )

Besides all of that, Wednesday was Megan's birthday, and it was fun times. We went to Ruby Tuesdays and watched Zoolander. I had a lot of fun.

Many thanks to Megan for making my room look like it does. I like it a lot.

Well that's all for now, check back in next time to see what crazy thing I do next.

Go to your Calendar and find the first real entry for each month of 2005 (not including memes of course). Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

And as how every time I've read this people use the first paragraph here we go..

I had fun last night at Isabelle's. No throwing up so I suppose that's good. Technically one could say I passed out, but I consider it more of a "I got tired so I went to sleep" thing :-p. Sorry to anyone who reads this who I called and talked to unnecessarily or whatever. So yeah here's to 2005!

Sleeping is good..but it becomes funny when you fall asleep at your friends house, wake up, and think you are at home sleeping. Anyhow, that happened to me, and yeah I'm drowsy, so I'm going to bed.

what have I been doing lately? nothin really..just sittin around doin school, work, and sleep heh

April: (i'll do the first line plus a few sentences of the second paragraph)
and my belt kinda just broke...

anyhow Happy April Fools day to all you s guys, cause I know i don't ge tcomments to my journal a lot but still i posted that, and so yeah i'm not doin gthat so you don't have to worry about such things..anyhow i'm really tipsy tonight right now and stuff..Go d i hate this weather is't so stormy outside... like there's thunder and stuff like that..oi vye and stuff like that

Well since it's been almost a month since I posted last, I figured I would be nice and tell everyone what I've been doing..

So yeah, not a lot has happened to me in the past month from Brian's birthday, when I posted last..until very recently..I started liking this one girl..she's friends with Megan and Adam, and she's really awesome. I enjoy spending time with her and all that good stuff. Her name's Diana. She's really funny, she's cute and generally an awesome girl to be around with.

I have been working mostly, kinda dragging though..I've been really kinda sick. Last Friday..as in the 24th, I completely lost my voice and all that good stuff. I got a sinus infection and it ended up giving me pink eye. Yesssss that was amazing, so I had no voice what-so-ever. So I dealt with that Friday and Saturday..I opened Publix Sunday..that sucked cause I had to wear my glasses and I despise my glasses. Monday was Monday, but I got new contacts so I wore them. I also got new Glasses..They are really different compared to the ones I've always gotten since like 1993 when I got glasses for the first time. I'll post a picture whenever I get them. Tuesday was boring, heh :-p

August: (again this first line doesn't really say anything about what was going on)
Screw what I have been doing since when I posted last so I will go on and post about what I did today.

Today started at 1 PM today :-p I got up and ate breakfast and whatnot and talked to people online for a little while..I got up from the comp, and started getting ready. I got Janel and we came back here and watched Tuesday's Reno 911. It was hilarious, I'll prolly watch it again sometime before the weekend is over haha..so after that got some dinner and went to McDonalds and Publix to get Paychecks and the like.

Well I haven't been up to a lot since school started, but I did clean my desk off and re-do it so ( I took some pictures )
If you were wondering what that car was that's my background, that's a 2006 Honda Civic and oh man those things look awesome. I wish I had money..

I haven't been doin too much lately, but I did make a big decision about the COBOL class. I am going to drop it, but I won't be dropping it until next Thursday. The reason for that is that I went after class and talked to my teacher about it and said I would give it another week, but chances were good that I was going to drop. She said that most students don't care enough to talk to her and she really appreciated that. So yeah, starting two Tuesday's from now I'll only have 9 credit hours and will be considered a part time student. Because my health insurance is weird, I have to keep a full-time student status, so what my dad's going to do is give the insurance people tons of paper work saying that I am a full time student. I can't get sick though from now to January, so that should be interesting.

I'll prolly post more later on, but I wanted to post those pictures now before I forgot. For now, I'm going to bed.

I'm goin to Alabama until Monday evening, so yeah, I'll be back Monday evening :-p

This year has flown by..it's crazy heh..but it's been an interesting one.

PS Expect a real post sometime tomorrow evening

Hello everyone, it's been two weeks and I figured since I have better things to do and since I love procrastination, I'd post a journal entry..I mean come on Tyler did and he hasn't posted since like August of 2004.

I haven't been doing too much as of late, just a ton of school. I've become slightly engulfed by UNF lately. Instead of spending 3 days up there, I've been doing 4 and 5..So that's that. I got advised for my Spring 2006 TermCollapse )
So that's that..It turns out I'll finish by this time next year..go figure that I finish with 90 credits. So I have to stay in school for another year to actually graduate..fun times there heh..I will be taking plenty of 1000 level classes to give my academic record a lot of cushion heh.

Besides all of that, I am still enjoying my classes, although I don't want to go to my speech class on the 22nd..I'm giving a persuasive speech on how new parents should just talk to their babies instead of saying ::in a baby voice:: "who's that cute little baby? yis yis!! that's youuuu!!" It should be an interesting speech..I'll let you guys watch it if you want heh

I also was informed that my family is changing phone plans..no more Cingular/AT&T Wireless now apparantly we will have Verizon..more later on that since nothing's going to happen with that until April of 06..Looks like I might be getting a flip phone though heh

This past weekend was fun though..well the past two weekends were fun. Two weekends ago Nick G came back to FL from Alabama..and we had a good time visiting and all that good stuff. This past weekend, didn't do too much until Saturday afternoon/night..Megan, Tyler, and I went to Pizza Hut and I have to say I really love their pizza, it was so good. So after that we headed to the mall and met up with Lauren V and one of her friends named Courtney..so after hanging out up there for a while, we decided to go to Wal-Mart and hang out there (mainly because the police at the mall are rather pushy to either go home or go see a movie). So that was fun. I got a soda compliments of Lauren and then proceeded to sneeze in it so soda went all over me. According to her, that was the first time she had seen anyone shoot soda out of their nose..so that was fun.

Well that's all I can think of..I'll prolly post again Thursday or Friday on my review of Harry Potter and also to confirm that I got the schedule I want for Spring 2006..so for now, goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow.

Besides all of that, I have a speech on Tuesday and I'm really starting to procrastinate about making it. I have a lot of stuff to do for this class, and since I want to get a really good grade I'll start on it today, yes today, my one and only day off from school.

Other than that, since I'm a nice brother I took Brian's shift for this evening, although I despise working Friday's he is giving me some money to work for him, so I can't complain too much. I would rather jump off a bridge than open up my availability to include Friday's. So yeah, I work 4-9..nothing too serious, but it's a Friday :-p

Also today, I went to bed at 1:45 and woke up at 12:50..I haven't slept that long in a very very long time and I loved every minute of it heh

Well that'll about do it for me. I'll prolly post again Tuesday or if I get angry at the speech preparation, sometime before that.

If you were wondering what that car was that's my background, that's a 2006 Honda Civic and oh man those things look awesome. I wish I had money..

Well lets see here, I asked Fred about going up to the office and he said very soon, in fact after Ginger trained..and she's training now so we'll see about that.

Other than that, school is school. I'm actually enjoying my classes this semester which is a shock to me :-p

One final deal, I have to do this and I don't really want to..RIP My Main Computer..well ok it's not really dead, but the Internet doesn't work on it right now and quite frankly it is dying..the fan died, and for about 2 days it wouldn't boot up. So I'm using the laptop now and it's all right.

Well since this is long and I have class tomorrow morning, I'm going to end this..who knows when I'll post again heh

I changed my journal around..I had that layout for a while and I got bored, so tonight I messed around and got the one I have now. Anyway, since tomorrow begins the Publix Nightmare Weekend..8 hours tomorrow, 10 hours Sunday, and 7 and a half Monday, I'm going to go to bed. Before anyone even says anything how baby-ish that is compared to other places of employment, Publix doesn't usually schedule one person a 10 hour shift..let alone a normal Cashier..anyway, I'm off to bed.

Screw what I have been doing since when I posted last so I will go on and post about what I did today.

Today started at 1 PM today :-p I got up and ate breakfast and whatnot and talked to people online for a little while..I got up from the comp, and started getting ready. I got Janel and we came back here and watched Tuesday's Reno 911. It was hilarious, I'll prolly watch it again sometime before the weekend is over haha..so after that got some dinner and went to McDonalds and Publix to get Paychecks and the like..I swear I can't walk into Publix without someone saying "Chris!" and wanting to shake my hand or something..It's confusing, cause I don't like doing that, anymore at least heh, I like to go in do whatever I need to do, and then leave again..but I hadn't seen some of those people and so I shook hands :-p

After that, Janel and I headed back to my house. I was lying on the floor messing with my cell phone about to call Carl to see what was up for tonight, but Isabelle and Carl showed up in my room..needless to say that startled me and I hung up heh. So we headed out to San Marco to see the 9 Emmy Nominated Short Films..there were 3 I actually had seen before in one of my travels to UCF. There was this one though called "7:35 de la manana"..it was really random and relatively funny..here's the link.. http://www.735am.com and thanks to Carl for posting that and IMing me that. So after that, Carl, Isabelle, and I headed over to Isabelle's house where we chit-chatted and messed around with a few games. Since Carl had to head home, we both left and now I'm here writing this.

Even though I've been up for a little over 13 hours, it feels like I have experienced an entire day..usually I get up and go to work so I never get that feeling.

That's all for now, since it's getting kinda long :-p

Well it's been a while since I posted last, but I'm updating now.

So yeah, things are going good..I've been working mostly, hanging out with friends, last weekend was me and Diana's One Month, so I headed down there and we celebrated. I had a lotta fun. While I was down there we saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I thought that was a really good movie. I enjoyed it a lot. Went to the Oaks mall, which I hadn't done in like 10 or so years, so it was like a trip back and all that good stuff. I was really happy to see Diana cause I hadn't been able to for a week :)

So yeah, other than that, I haven't been doing too much, yesterday was annoying though. I was scheduled until 8, but said I could stay until 9. The guy said I couldn't leave, not in a joking way, but said "Chris you won't leave until you have everything I need you to do done." All I know is that Publix sucks, but I'll have to live with that.

Well since I work in 35 minutes, I'm going to go get ready. 12:30-7:30..and that's what I work so imma end this now.

On the 3rd I worked an insane amount. They called me in early and the day just kept on dragging along..in the end I did 8:18 AM - 4:31 PM. After I got off work, I got completely ready to go to Gainesville, and left here 5:15ish. It was so awesome, I was incredibly happy to see Diana again and whatnot. I took her to Mellow Mushroom, which was good as always. There's one up on Southside Blvd. and I went there with Leslie and Ben back in August of 04 and enjoyed myself. After dinner, we saw War of the Worlds. We both enjoyed it a lot. So after the movie finished, we headed back to her dorm and went to sleep. At about 3 in the morning I got a phone call from Isabelle, so that woke me up :-p Yeah I'm sorry I didn't tell you Isabelle that I was going to say I was spending the night at your place. I thought I did, but I suppose I didn't.

So me and Diana woke up at about 10ish and lounged around until about noon and went to Ginnie Springs. It's off of I-75 and you go down a series of 2 lane roads. It was pretty cool, wait I mean it was pretty cold, I went in with my clothes on and it didn't provide me any warmth :-p So I was soaked on the way back to Diana's dorm, she was worse off though. She went all the way in hehe

So we got back to her room and I changed into her gym clothing and hung out until 8ish when I left. I have to say I had an awesome time down there. I can't wait to see her again! Hopefully I will this weekend hehe

Plans for today: Working 12:30-8:30..after that, prolly come home and do nothing.

Until next time..

I have been working mostly, kinda dragging though..I've been really kinda sick. Last Friday..as in the 24th, I completely lost my voice and all that good stuff. I got a sinus infection and it ended up giving me pink eye. Yesssss that was amazing, so I had no voice what-so-ever. So I dealt with that Friday and Saturday..I opened Publix Sunday..that sucked cause I had to wear my glasses and I despise my glasses. Monday was Monday, but I got new contacts so I wore them. I also got new Glasses..They are really different compared to the ones I've always gotten since like 1993 when I got glasses for the first time. I'll post a picture whenever I get them. Tuesday was boring, heh :-p

Wednesday I went to work, and by this time 6 days had passed without me seeing Diana. I was going insane, I couldn't wait another few days until the 3rd to see her. I had been able to get by with calling her, cause that makes my day in general, but I wanted to see her again. So I call her Wednesday and she says that she's driving around Gainesville, so I said ohh alrighty, but I had to let her go cause it was pouring. So about 5:15, I'm cashiering, and someone says "hey", I turn around and say "hey....HEY!!" and it was Diana. She surprised me. It was amazing :-p I turned off my light and started hugging her. So after work we hung out and watched Hitch. I absolutely adored last night. I was so happy to have seen her after such a long time apart from her. I didn't want to leave her last night, but she had class today and had to drive back early.

Today was boring..I worked..It rained..and uh yeah that was that.

Today's agenda: Haircut at 9:30 AM and afterwards nothing until 5:30 or so.

T-Minus: 2 Days and Counting until Gainesville time with Diana!

Happy Two Weeks Diana!! :)

That is all for now..

Was simply amazing.

I went to Gainesville today to see Diana, but before I saw her, I did get lost :-p. Thanks a bunch to Isabelle who helped me get to Diana's dorm :)

Her dorm is almost exactly like Janel's and Carl's, so I thought that was interesting. I liked it.

So yeah, we went to the Reitz Union and had lunch. That place doesn't change too too much, but I enjoyed it as usual. After the Union we (Diana, Me, and Diana's roomie Vanessa) walked around the campus a little bit, and then headed back to their room. I myself enjoyed a long nap, as did Diana. So we napped, and then went to Texas Roadhouse and had a good burger.

So yeah, I'm planning another trip down there for the 4th of July, so I'll be able to see her again sometime soon.

It was an awesome day!

Nothin else really to say right now about anything.

Well today was an awesome day..first of all, I got up and all that jazz, and got ready to go Oil Changing with Janel. It took like 25 minutes for it to get done, so I thought that was really fast. Afterwards me, Carl, Janel, and Logan went up to the mall to look around and all that stuff. They are really redoin the food court..I dunno I liked the old way it was heh

Afterwards I dropped everyone off where I made the quote of the day for Carl, so look at his post.

So 8 rolls around and Diana calls me to see if I wanna do anything. I do cause I hadn't been able to see her since 5ish on Tuesday, so I go over there and get her and bring her back to my house..we started to clean my room..and it actually looks pretty good..we plan to finish it Friday :-p

We took some pictures too, so here they are:Collapse )

Spending time with her is absolutely amazing..It's prolly one of the best feelings in the world to have someone close to you talk to you and stuff..She is probably one of the best things that's happened to me in recent memory. Diana's easy to talk to and extremely fun to hang out with. I really would like our relationship to last, and I know that it will if we are both honest with each other. I can truly say that she is an incredible girl. I look forward to many more days of this :)
